Ken Harring resigned from his position as UMass Lowell's head baseball coach on Monday, according to UMass Lowell sources.
The news comes less than one month after an independent investigation cleared Harring from claims of racial discrimination toward a player. At the conclusion of that investigation, the school found that Harring “did not violate (university) policy.”
Harring's top assistant, Nick Barese, is expected to serve as the next head coach, at least in an interim capacity.
UMass Lowell administrators hired independent investigator Brigid Harrington on March 9 after one of Harring’s former players, Cedric Rose, whose father is Black and mother is White, alleged through NAACP attorney Ed Burley that Harring removed Rose from the team in February after learning that the player kept notes about the coach’s alleged racist behavior in a diary.
